We manufacture high-quality veneer plywood and custom wood veneer panels for beautiful interiors. Each panel is made to your exacting standards. All core construction options are available.
It takes great attention to detail to create the same grain consistency in the veneer of our architectural plywood.
Zebrawood, Claro Walnut, English Sycamore, Rosewood, and Teak are just a few of the exotic hardwood veneers we offer. Our customers have access to well over 200 species worldwide—both domestics and exotics—all responsibly sourced.
|Species||Domestic and exotic veneers. Timber Products has access to over 200 species of veneer worldwide. From Afromosia to Zebrawood, we have you covered.|
|Glue Chemistry (e.g., ULEF)||Crosslinking vinyl acetate. Does not contain urea formaldehyde or formaldehyde.|
Common applications for architectural plywood include commercial, public, and residential projects, as well as panels for wall paneling, caseworks, furniture components, ceilings, and yacht and airplane interiors.
The benefits of using architectural plywood include:
Minimize panel damage by proper handling. Plan for minimal movement of panels via a flow plan. Allow at least 48 hours to acclimate panels to installation environment.
We provide efficient scheduling, handling, and routing of both full or partial loads, regardless of the number of loads you ship. Our fleet of more than 150 trucks, along with our brokerage division, assures that your load will be delivered on time and in excellent condition.
We are FSC chain-of-custody certified, and documents are available if specified.Does Timber Products require a minimum quantity for an order of architectural plywood?
We produce architectural panels to project requirements. Minimum is one.Am I required to accept shop panels when purchasing architectural panels?
No shop panels are shipped. All architectural panels are shipped on-grade.
We offer a range of custom matching options—from center and run matching to specialty matching—to help enhance the appearance of a single panel or even an entire project.
When matching between adjacent veneer leaves, the veneer leaves of a flitch are edge glued together in patterns. Most matching is done with sliced veneers. The matching of adjacent veneer leaves must be specified. Common matches in the industry include book matching, slip matching, random matching, and end or butt matching.
Common matches of this type include (1) running match, (2) balance match, (3) balance and center match, and (4) slip, center, book match. Running match is the default for custom grade, while balance match is the default method for premium grade. Balance and center match is considered by some to be the most pleasing assembly, while slip, center, book match allows for a nice balance of sweep and character marks.
These veneer matching techniques include sunburst match, box match, reverse or end grain box match, herringbone or V Book match, or diamond match. Rift sliced, quarter sliced, and highly figured veneers are generally used for these specialty matches. The different matches of veneer cause the reflection of light to vary from adjoining leaves, bringing "life" to the panel.
We use four unique processes to produce a range of wood patterns that are graded and sorted by hand, ensuring a reliable grain pattern on each and every panel.
The log is centered in the lathe and turned against a knife blade at a slight angle following the log’s annular growth rings, producing a multi-patterned grain veneer.Ideal for:
Large surface applications where a broad grain pattern will suffice. Rotary cut sheets are generally less expensive than sliced veneer and can yield whole piece face sheets.
Produces a narrow, striped grain veneer where the growth rings of the log strike the blade at approximately right angles. Some species will create a series of straight stripes, while others’ stripes may be varied in angle and length. Red and white oak produce a pronounced flake pattern when quarter sliced, while mahogany creates a ribbon stripe pattern.Ideal for:
Mission-style or other applications requiring a uniform appearance with generous ray flaking.
Produces a rift or comb grain effect similar to that of quarter slicing, but generally is only used with red and white oak. This process minimizes ray flake, as the log is cut at an angle of about 15 percent off the quartered position.Ideal for:
An application calling for uniform white or red oak appearance without ray flake.
The most common slicing method that produces a distinct cathedral grain veneer. A half log, or flitch, is mounted so that the veneer is cut along the growth rings, parallel to a line through the center of the log.Ideal for:
Any application where an eye-catching pattern is desired at an affordable cost.
|Key Rating Value|
Pro-Core MDF uses MDF crossbands and a veneer core interior to deliver the best performance of any core material we offer. The MDF face and back offer the best laminating surface, and the veneer core delivers the best physical properties and lighter weight.
Our medium-density fiberboard core can be machined to the finest tolerances without chipping. It provides an exceptional laminating surface that is smooth, hard and consistent throughout the panel.
We manufacture one of the industry’s finest softwood veneer cores using trees harvested from our own forestlands. The quality of our softwood veneer yields a core that is consistent in thickness and a wood veneer laminating surface that is second to none.
Our specially engineered particle board core provides the perfect density on the face and back to accept laminates of all kinds, and a core that delivers physical properties to make it a workhorse for many applications.
Today, all of our hardwood plywood is produced under the GreenT™ label, which means it's environmentally certified and meets the toughest emission regulations in the world.
Using GreenT™ Hardwood Plywood makes projects eligible for LEED® credit support. These products meet the following certifications:
